Born and raised in Fairfield County Connecticut. Upon graduating high school, I began my career as a carpenter as a means to pay the bills. I enjoyed my career as a carpenter for the following 20 years, absorbing as much information as possible with the intention of future growth. In that time, I married my high school sweetheart, purchased two homes, and have been graced with two beautiful, healthy boys (5 years apart). Most of my "free" time is spent with my family doing various family activities. While sometimes exhausting, I wouldn't change it for the world.
